Making 3yo understand the consequences of teasing
Long story short, I found out from my 3 yo DS that he and his older cousin who is 9 have been calling a little girl "fat". I immediately told him how wrong this is, and how it could hurt her feelings. He said "she doesn't cry". I just don't know how to explain the implications of this to him. At his age, he would just laugh along with you if you called him a name and think it was a big joke, but this little girl is about 10 or so, and I'm sure she doesn't find it amusing. My nephew who is involved in this can be made to understand, and I plan on discussing it with his mom, but how do I make my 3 year old understand what hurt feelings are?
